I heart running buddies!

Red came with me to the Greenway in Alpharetta to run with me. For her, it was an easy run. For me, it was hard. Together we had a good talk, accomplished 3 miles (in 36 minutes!!) and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather. It brought back good memories of our training runs last year. We also reminisced about how the training for the Peachtree was a little nutso, but we learned so much. I think we're at a place in our running lives that we know how to take the pressure off and just enjoy being able to run. I guess you can say we have some perspective =)

On another note I wore my new running shoes. I forgot that they'd have a ton more cushioning in them, so it took a little getting used to. I got two pairs so that I could switch them out, making them last longer. It'll be a good strategy for days when I'm running twice.

just found your blog. I would love to have some running buddies, as I do all of my running alone ... or with the kids. I can imagine it would make the miles pass much faster!

I have so much respect for people who run with kids, especially in jogging strollers! Those are usually the people who beat the snot out of me in races LOL!
